Mental health funding not meeting demand

Mental health funding not meeting demand

Last year Bell Media provided $500,000 to the Institut universitaire en santé mentale de Montréal Foundation (FIUSMM) to develop apps and mobile support applications, $1 million to the Mental Health Commission of Canada to develop programs to support post-secondary students, $400,000 to the Montreal General Hospital Foundation to acquire a repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) device, and $150,000 to Ogijiita Pimatiswin Kinamatwin for Indigenous youth support services.

Safewards gives staff and caregivers a set of tools that help reduce conflict, develop relationships, and focus on helping the patient heal, in a safe and peaceful environment. "Growing and expanding our services at Sault Area Hospital will help provide the level of care that every member of our community deserves", said Teresa Martone, executive director, Sault Area Hospital Foundation.

From what Alan Stevenson has seen, Bell Let's Talk has had a positive impact, especially with high-profile people such as Hughes having the courage to show her vulnerability in telling her story.

In 2015, Bell announced it would extend Bell Let's Talk for another 5 years.

Bell will also donate 5¢ to mental health initiatives for every view on their official campaign video.

"Bell Let's Talk Day has quickly grown into the biggest conversation about mental health anywhere and we hope you'll join in to let those who struggle know they've got your support. She was really supportive of seeing Bell take these actions, but also recognized that if what we do helps one Canadian, that's a venture worth pursuing from her perspective".

It helps to create more of an inclusive atmosphere which can help a person feel better in that they're not alone, said Sharma. Let's end the stigma!

Lethbridge College had an influx of global students this year and the topic of mental health and stigma typically hasn't been at the forefront of conversation for those students in their cultures.

Hatters in distress have an abundance of resources for dealing with mental health issues, the Canadian Mental Health Association's local representative told the News on Bell Let's Talk Day.

"I know lots of young people now who have struggled a bit and they've got everything going ideal in their life and you think everything is rosy but it's not".
